Lovely warm welcome upon arrival - made to feel at home instantly. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean and comfortable - the attention to detail was much appreciated. Jackie really is a hostess second to none! A stay at this guest house is highly recommended.

Also we arrived late night, we had the warmest welcome of all our stays in UK! Jackie is the most special and wonderful host. The cosy and clean bedrooms were very comfortable. Jackie's full English breakfast was excellent, served with her immense humor and accompanied by Arias sung with her great voice of a talented Opera Singer. Every of our... More

I have been staying at Jackie and Roger's fantastic guest house for almost 5 years and have always been made to feel like part of the family. They are wonderful hosts, the rooms are spotless and the Egyptian silk bed covers make you feel like you're living in the lap of luxury. Jackie's full English breakfasts are nothing short of...

Greeted by a motherly landlady who settled me into a pristine room. Bed comfortable and had a good night's sleep. Unfortunately was unable to locate a light switch for the lamps which were too close to the headboards on the beds and I kept hitting my head on them. Similarly I kept hitting my head on the light fitting in... More

Wonderfully comfortable b&b in a good location for our Cotswold trip. Greeted by Jackie with homemade cakes and a lot of enthusiasm for our 10month old baby, we were well looked after with travel cot and high chair provided and a great bed for us too. Great double aspect room overlooking garden. Ideal location with pub a few hundred yards... More

My wife and I stayed with our 10 month old baby for one night whilst visiting the Cotswolds. Jackie was extremely welcoming and absolutely loves babies! The whole B&B was spotless and professionally run. Especially pleasant were the "extras" such as fresh cupcake, sweets and fresh milk for our hot drinks. We had a great night's sleep, as did baby...

On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically by Jackie. The room was spotless and well appointed. We decided not to take the cooked breakfast as it was an extra charge. It was a little unfortunate that we were largely left to fend for ourselves at breakfast. Of course we are quite capable of pouring our corn flakes and cooking the toast... More
